How the BTK Killer Got His Name — and the Paper Trail He Left Behind

No one is aware of how lengthy it had been hidden there. A seemingly harmless piece of paper caught between pages of an engineering textbook at the Wichita Public Library. But the phrases typed on there have been the begin of a cat-and-mouse hunt of the self-dubbed BTK Killer, Dennis Rader.

On the floor, Rader led a reasonably typical life. He served in the Air Force in the Nineteen Sixties and ultimately married and settled down in Wichita and had two children. He labored for the tenting tools firm Coleman Company, house safety firm ADT and then as a Park City, Kansas, compliance officer. And to essentially hammer in the household man picture, he was additionally an lively member of his church and a Boy Scout chief.

But that picture-perfect facade might have been the precise picture he needed to relay as he coated up a few of the most grotesque murders in American historical past.
